I think it all depends on the size of your Neural Network (NN) and
convergence time constraints. If you have a small set of neurons, and
are not restricted on how long a supervised training over a set of
controlled templates should take, then it shouldn't matter which
language is used.
However if the above-mentioned constraints matter, I suggest that you
would use a combination of Erlang + C (or some other language suitable
for high-performance arithmetic) to build a modular NN, where Erlang
would be responsible for distributing computations over several
computers, and a C-port program would be used to implement the algorithm
of NN training for a subset of neurons.
